A Few Thoughts on Grief

Grieving comes for many reasons, not just over the loss of a person or a pet. Souls can also experience grief over the loss of a relationship, the sudden changing of a lifelong career, the loss of a home or a way of life they have always known, sometimes even the dying of a dream.
The thing about grief is that there are always certain stages the soul must go through, and at the pace that is right for them, in order to achieve healing, peace, and the ability to move on.
There is no singular right way to grieve, nor is there one timeline within which to do it.
The grieving process is personal to each person who experiences it and cannot be judged or discriminated by others.
Grief is how we accept loss, adjust to change, and hopefully grow along a new path towards a different destination.
Change is hard. We have a built-in human inclination to resist it. However, change is also inevitable in life. Grief is how we deal with changes that must occur and often bring us to different experiences, locations, and decisions that we quite likely would never have made otherwise (perhaps we needed the change to force us into doing the right thing we didn’t realize we needed to do).
Grief comes to us all. The best thing to do when it arrives is to allow ourselves to feel it, every step of the way, and see where it eventually leads us.
